Wet n Wild Coloricon Pencil Liners

After seeing the new Coloricon pencils or shall I say, pencil, over at Shakeup Your Makeup, I knew I had to at least look for them at my area CVS. Well, I totally lucked out. Not only did I find the majority of the line, but until tonight anyway, the Wet n Wild line is BOGO 50% at CVS, so I was able to get each pencil for only 75 cents a piece (not that the retail price at 99 cents is a lot either).
Swatches are:
white, amethyst, olive, charcoal, dark brown & deep blue

I haven't worn these out of the house yet, but something tells me they are not going to be long-wearing, as the swatches were easily taken off with a piece of paper towel. However, even with that, these are so soft and creamy, a huge improvement from the old Wet n Wild eye pencil line! I hope they do a similar formula for some lip pencils (I hate the formula of those, they hurt to apply!).

PS As much as I love that these are shrink wrapped, that stuff was insanely hard to get off!

Have you tried these yet? Are you going to try and find them now?

Update: I just read in the weekend circular that Wet n Wild is also on sale BOGO 50% this coming week!

I picked these up awhile back when they first popped up in my area, and they are creamy/soft but they rub off my eyelids terribly fast. I always have to top them with a matching eyeshadow or else they budge. I love the new colors they have, though!
(And that shrink wrap is awful, ha. I have to pull off the cap and then cut it off)

I might have to pass if they are not long-lasting. In Florida's heat, that's a must. I do like the colors and the selections.

@Steph: I'm thinking they will be nice on the waterline and to tightline. I injured myself trying to get that darned wrapping off (but I'm a bit of a klutz).

@Kimberly: If you like to pop a light colored shade on your waterline, I'd definitely pick up the white. It's a perfect consistency for that! I don't think I'll get a ton of use out of all the colors, but we'll see since my eyelids don't tend to be super oily.
